Dassault Etendard IVP - Flottille 16F - Kitty Hawk 1:48
« on: February 23, 2023, 12:25:28 AM »
Hi everyone,
I'm going to start to assemble this Kitty Hawk kit:

to make the Etendard IVP:


Source: [url=http://www.fox-two.com]www.fox-two.com [/url]

I need help about the colors choice for camouflage,
I plan to use:

for the Celomar 6346-2204 either The Gunze H-305 (Gray FS36118) or the Tamiya XF-53 (Neutral Grey)
for the Celomar 6346-2274 the Gunze H-337 (Grayish Blue FS35237

What do you think?

To start, as usual, a quick look inside the box:

The Etendard is one of those aircraft that does not get enough attention.  Good to see it getting some of that much needed attention in your capable hands!

You're joking, right? ???

If anything, I should be asking you for tips to improve my builds! :icon_alabanza:
